What and Where: Long Island, in its 100-plus mile length, has four distinct regions: the North Shore and South Shore are closer to New York City, while the North Fork and South Fork jut east into the Atlantic Ocean. The South Fork of Long Island is home to the Hamptons and (on the islandís eastern tip) Montauk.
The North Fork of Long Island is home to 11 villages and towns, starting with Aquebogue on the western base of the fork and extending out to the village of Orient. The North Fork borders Peconic Bay and Gardiners Bay to the south and Long Island Sound to the north.
What to Do: A summer on the Long Island shore is almost legendary; mild temperatures and an abundance of salt water make it ideal for beachgoers, boaters and other water sports enthusiasts. In the fall, the agricultural aspect of the North Fork comes to the fore, and visitors can tour vineyards and orchards and celebrate the joys of the harvest with year-round residents. Thereís cultural life all year round, with lots of shopping, dining, art galleries, theatres, museums, and historical sites.
